Meet Your Director

Matthew Wells, PT, DPT

MY HOBBIES: In his spare time, Matthew enjoys snowboarding, hiking, golfing, exercising, playing Ultimate Frisbee—which he played competitively for seven years at Scranton—and spending time with his friends and family. He has also been a volunteer fireman for 13 years in his hometown of Hillsborough.

When Matthew Wells was in high school, severe back pain prevented him from competing in golf tryouts. This ongoing pain landed him in outpatient physical therapy, where he became passionate about the profession once he realized that it combined his love for science, sports, and helping people. Matthew eventually decided that he wanted to become a physical therapist and went on to attend The University of Scranton, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science in 2016. He also obtained Dean’s List and was a member of Alpha Epsilon Delta Health Pre-Professional Honor Society at Scranton. Matthew then studied abroad for a semester in Rome with Loyola University Chicago before continuing at Scranton to earn a Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2019.

His education also included a strength and conditioning internship with the Lackawanna College football team, as well as a work-study job, where he developed and instructed sport-specific workout plans for various collegiate teams, including field hockey, swimming, lacrosse, volleyball, and tennis. In 2019, Matthew traveled to Guatemala for a physical therapy service trip, where he treated underserved and underprivileged patients in outpatient orthopedic and pediatric settings.

Matthew started working at Twin Boro Physical Therapy in September of 2019 as a staff physical therapist at the North Brunswick location. While working full time at North Brunswick, he also spent a great deal of time treating Division I college football athletes and NFL players at the Martinsville location. Matthew was promoted to Assistant Clinic Director of North Brunswick after three years, and then in 2022, he became be the Clinic Director of the new startup clinic in Skillman.

Matthew treats a variety of patients, but specializes in orthopedics, adolescent populations, advanced athletes and weekend warriors, and vestibular and post-surgical patients. Some of the techniques he uses frequently include advanced exercise prescription, joint mobilization and manipulation, motor control cueing, postural restoration, the McKenzie Method, the Mulligan technique, and blood flow restriction training. He utilizes a combination of hands-on manual therapy and exercises with a focus on the biopsychosocial model, in which psychological and social factors are carefully considered in addition to the physical issues each patient is dealing with. Through this unique and personalized approach, he achieves superior patient outcomes with high satisfaction rates.

Matthew is also a clinical educator for students working towards their physical therapy degree and he enjoys the challenges of helping to develop the next generation of physical therapists. He has completed continuing education courses on the shoulder, ACL rehab, and pain neuroscience, and obtained Blood Flow Restriction certification in 2021.

Another guiding principle for Matthew is Twin Boro’s One2Four Care Model, which is a unique approach to treatment that focuses on progressing patients from a low functional level to the peak performance required to return to their prior or preferred level of function. Matthew therefore focuses on helping his patients reach the goals that are most important to them and develops creative and individualized plans of care that will help patients achieve these goals. He believes in the power of education and provides tools to his patients that are designed to create optimal outcomes and improve performance in the activity they desire.

Matt is fantastic! I highly recommend this practice. They are very professional and highly effective.
I just finished PT with Matt, and he was excellent. The facility is clean and modern, and Matt is knowledgable and friendly. He gives a lot of attention and care to each of his patients, ensuring that the right exercises are being done and that the healing process is happening. I would definitely recommend him!
Celeste S.
I went to physical therapy due to neck pain. Matt gave me exercises to strengthen and improve my posture and had to pivot treatment when my shoulder started acting up. I’m happy to say that after these past few months I’m feeling better than ever! Thanks so much to Matt and his friendly team for making such a difference!
Marc H
The staff is extremely kind and knowledgeable. Flexible scheduling. Clean and modern facility.
Finnean Jaworovich
Thought my pain was in my hamstring rooted from my hip and starting to work on both among other things. Helps with lifting form and other thing definitely noticing changes.
Christopher Herman
In the few months I have been being treated by Dr. Matt Wells I have noticed significant improvement in my knee stability. Dr. Wells is extremely knowledgeable and has a great report with all of his patients. I can’t recommend Twinboro Skillman enough.
Ryan Velez
I recently finished a roughly 4-month course for some minor issues with my back. Matt was great with helping me build a program for in-office and at home, including adjusting it as my needs changed throughout the program. Fast-forward to today and my back pain is next-to-none and I have a lot more core strength overall, include exercises and insights to work into my standard fitness routine. I highly recommend Matt and the team to anyone with PT needs.
Seth Sherry
If I have an issue with anything, I first hop on YouTube to try it fix it first. Issue with lawnmower, dishwasher error, plumbing, you name it. DIY weekend warrior.Hurt my shoulder while exercising, terrible pain, barely could lift it perpendicular to my chest and thought Youtube can help. Wrong. Too many movements to do and none the videos showed the pain I was having at the location.Introduced to Matt Wells, first time I was at PT. No clue what to expect. He knew pretty much the exact issue and what to target to strength and heal not only my shoulder, but weakened areas in my back and chest. I enjoyed our conversations where he taught me what he was doing and did the movements he gave me as homework religiously. Place is clean and the “helpers” are great too (I forgot your name, I’m so sorry!) Matt is just a genuinely nice guy. Watching him interact with all the patients was something. Always chipper and patient and pretty much always had a smile on his face. I think it took me 2 .5 months to get my shoulder in proper order, this is going maybe 1-2 a week.True craftsman at his work. Thanks Matt and I’ll see you the next time I do something silly with my body!
Ken Fredeen
I recently completed 3+ months of PT at Twin Boro - Skillman for a partially torn medial meniscus. My goals were 1) avoid surgery, and 2) get back to running. So far, so good. After 4 months of no running and at three weeks removed from PT, I just completed my usual 5k training loop with minimal pain and at just a tad slower pace from where I left off. The whole Twin Boro team were great. Matt is extremely knowledgeable and patiently took extra time to answer all my detailed questions about the treatments and exercises. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who needs PT.
christine mastakas
I came to Matt to prepare for a hiking trip after meniscus surgery. I was limited with 6 weeks to get me back on my feet and ready to go. Matt and his aides were very helpful and attentive. They got me where I needed to be. He listened to me that I wanted to be pushed to my limit and did not let me slack . I am very pleased with my results.
Viji Padmanabhan

This was my first time using this PT office. I made good progress and am very pleased with the results. Matt is a nice young man and is very knowledgeable and helpful. He’ll give you a good program of home and in-office exercises. Every session includes hands-on massage and stretching which allows time for questions, comments and program adjustment if needed. I highly recommend this PT office.

Matt Wells and his staff are absolutely incredible. They were integral in rehabbing my foot fracture, regaining functional mobility, and alleviating much of the chronic pain and soreness I succumbed to. Most importantly however, they were tremendously kind, patient, compassionate, and helpful throughout the process. I highly recommend Matt and Twin Boro for any physical therapy needs, as they are truly exemplary.

Abi Vivek
I went in for therapy for very severe ankle injury and sprain. The therapist at Skillman - Matt Wells - was very knowledgeable and I saw improvement just after a couple of sessions. My ankle is now very flexible and I can climb the stairs without any strain. Matt is very professional, encouraging and answered all my doubts patiently and cleared my anxieties regarding the injury.
Kathy Pavalkis
When I needed physical therapy Twin Boro was strongly recommended by friends. Dr. Matt Wells was my primary therapist and worked with me and directed my activities to promote healing. The care I received there was professional and effective with the just the right amount of humor on some of those really difficult days.

I sought physical therapy for shoulder and neck pain. I am grateful to have been referred to Matt Wells at Twin Boro PT. He assessed my condition thoroughly before recommending exercises that could improve my range of motion, and reduce the pain I was experiencing performing everyday tasks. The exercises were supplemented with hands on work tailored to my symptoms, and heat and stim therapy. Although recovery can take time, I felt improvement after just a few sessions. Matt is a knowledgeable, deeply motivated therapist who is genuinely invested in the wellbeing of his patients. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt to anyone seeking physical therapy,

Eric Bedell
First time trying PT and I couldn’t recommend Twin Boro more. I work in a corporate setting, and sitting for long periods of time has lead to tight hips and lots of lower back pain. I worked with Matt who helped me relieve this pain through a combination of in person treatment options and exercises to do at home. Highly recommend!
Krista Ziegler
Dr. Matthew was very skillful and attentive to details. He listened to me and truly took the time to make an individualized plan for my recovery. He explained my symptoms and the physiology behind my rehab plan. I highly recommend anyone to visit Matthew Wells for their PT needs!!
